AdvancedMame and Disks of Tron
I assume that it should be functioning in order for the environmental version to have any chance of working properly.
Correct. Again, depending on the set type you're using,
dotron.zipwill need to be present in the same folder for
dotrone.zip(environmental) to work.
@mediamogul At this point, I would be happy to get any version of this rom to work, let alone the ideal environmental one.
I am currently downloading my third set claiming to be .106 and will get all of the Disks of Tron roms in there at the same time. If that doesn't work, I have to assume that the issue is my inability to find a working rom and begin working on getting one of the other emulators to allow my mouse to function.

@mediamogul Alright, I have completed my download and confirmed that these roms are a correct .106 set with RomCenter and the .106 dat file from the retropie github page.
After that I added all three Disks of Tron roms to the pi, but still none of them run in AdvancedMame 1.4 or 3.7. They just start up then go back to the emulation station menu.
Are there any other factors that could cause a rom to not run? Is it possible that I have messed up some other file in a way that prevents just one game from running?

The lack of a BIOS would do it, but I don't think this game needs one. Have any other games been crashing as well, or is 'Discs of Tron' the only game your attempting to run through AdvanceMAME?
@mediamogul I am running all of the games that use spinners in Advancedmame. So far, this is the only one that doesn't work. I have Tempest up and running for example.
Mouse support for the other emulators seems spotty at best and spinner games are basically unplayable on a regular controller.
Launch it again, let it fail, then post the contents of
@mediamogul The contents are as follows:
A quick look at the contents of my rom, though, shows all these files to be there:
Perhaps there is a missing pointer?
Can you confirm that the ROM paths listed in
Also, can you confirm that the 'Discs of Tron' ROM files are indeed located in either of those two directories on your RetroPie setup and not in any sub directories for example?

@mediamogul That worked! The rom path along with the samples and artwork paths were incorrect. Changing them to reflect their actual location in the arcade folder (which I am using) allowed the game to run!
Thank you so much for your help!
Not a problem. Glad to hear it's working.
